For over 15 years I have been providing therapy for adults, adolescents, couples, families and groups in a variety of settings. I have worked in outpatient counseling centers, psychiatric hospitals, medical hospitals, treatment centers and public schools. Although I enjoy working with all kinds of clients my specialized population is eating disorders. I worked for three years as a primary therapist with the Eating Disorder Center of Denver and I also worked as the eating disorder specialist at a transitional living center for young women in Boulder.
I received my B.A. in Sociology with a Minor in Dance from the University of Colorado, Boulder and my Masters degree in Clinical Social Work from the University of Texas, Austin.
I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and place paramount importance on being present and authentic with you. I utilize an empowerment model in which you, the client, hold the key to unlocking yourself from your own pain. My role is to provide you with a safe space where you can begin to trust your inner wisdom and begin to take the steps needed for healing. I can offer you new ways to cope with daily life stressors and give you the skills needed to overcome difficult addictive cycles. I believe that change can occur when one is truly supported in a relationship built upon trust and mutuality.
